Comment 15 for bug 284298

The work around does not work as expected for me. I follow the steps above, and indeed it saves the 'system' setting as well as the wireless key.

However, on reboot, I expect the system setting for wireless to connect to the wireless router before logging in (so I should be connected by the time I see the login screen). This is not happening.

According to http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/intrepid/alpha5#Network%20Manager%200.7 "system wide settings (i.e., no need to log in in order to get a connection)". This function is not working for me with wireless connection...

Is there a workaround for this? 8.10, 32bit. Atheros driver.
